Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrew DiMarzo.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
As a musician in the Boston music scene since November of ’13. I have grown from a solo-acoustic performer – playing all throughout New England – into a very high-energy Soul/Rock Trio known as the Andrew DiMarzo trio.
Since our formation in February of ’17, the Andrew DiMarzo Trio has released our first professionally recorded album titled “ForeverGrow”, sold out the 100 Cap. the room called the Lilypad in Inman Square – Cambridge and has also had multiple weekends of gigs in NYC. We are only continuing to grow as a band, and the supporting members of the trio come from all around the world with backgrounds in Indian Raga, Latin Jazz, Heavy Metal and more.
These diverse arrays of musicianship have truly created a unique and powerful sound for the trio – both in the studio and at our shows!
Please tell us about your art.
Our art is driven both by an authentic connection with my life-story of self-growth such as being sober for nearly 7 years, as well as having multiple family members now claim their own sobriety. Our art is often about my connection to my Higher Power, and my need to create and connect with others on a supportive and empathetic level.
My music talks about the raw realness of how common tragedies can be in our lives, but also about how much more powerful the resilience of our spirits can be when push comes to shove. Our debut EP is titled “ForeverGrow” and is all about this sense of cultivating our purposes in life for the greater good, while still offering a near-insane level of tightly crafted songs, poetic-lyrics and very soulfully inspired rock-music for our audiences and fans.
What do you think about conditions for artists today? Has life become easier or harder for artists in recent years? What can cities like ours do to encourage and help art and artists thrive?
I think that one of the best ways to connect with other artists – and to really feel accepted and known in their communities – is to support other local artists. When you start coming around to other people’s shows and you become a familiar face in the crowd, people take note of that and become curious about your own artwork.
It’s a great way to network and also makes some really stellar friendships with people who are going to “get you” because creative people are just as “different” and absolutely as amazing as you.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
People can listen to our work on iTunes, and any music-streaming services that they prefer like Spotify, Apple Music, etc. They can also find us on all social media platforms either as the “Andrew DiMarzo Trio”, or simply “Andrew DiMarzo”.
The best way to truly support our music, however, is to make that investment of purchasing our EP, and then coming out to a show! Our live shows are where the real magic in our trio is. You seriously need to experience the wild energy that we offer our fans at our concerts because we don’t play around! Our goal is always to have such a big impact on our fans, that they feel like they HAVE to tell their friends about us!
